Charter Schools Gain Momentum in San Joaquin County

Charter Schools Gain Momentum in San Joaquin County

Year after year, we see more parents demanding high quality school choice options for their children. Current enrollment numbers tell us that an estimated 547,800 students are enrolled in charter public schools across the state for the 2014-15 school year. Charter enrollment grew by an estimated 33,525 increase this year. This growth pattern isn’t limited to student enrollment in existing charter schools, in fact there are 87 new charter schools that opened their doors this year, bringing the total number of charters in California to 1,184.  Despite the growth and momentum, charter school students only represent about 7% of California’s student population.  Yet according to a number of polls and studies conducted in recent years a majority of parents feel charter schools do a better job than traditional public schools.

Delta College dedicates Horticulture Center

Delta College dedicates Horticulture Center

San Joaquin Delta College President Kathy Hart said it was the perfect day to dedicate the next project in a series of improvements at the college as she cut the ribbon signaling the opening of of the new state-of-the-art Horticulture Center Tuesday afternoon. Picture: And attendees agreed it was - sunny with a slight breeze- outside the two new working greenhouses and updated plant nursery, a "production classroom" according to horticulture professor Mike Toscano. He proudly showed off the updated facilities saying that all the plants had been grown from seeds, cutting or plugs. "Everything here has student value-added," said Toscano. "Each plant has been worked on by a student." The horticulture nursery is a hidden gem for plant-seekers with prices way below your average retail or big box stores. It's open to the public each Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and will be open the same hours this Saturday for a "weekend sale".
